Lavender Herb Butter Cookies

Infused with aromatic and relaxing lavender, these butter cookies are as delicious as they are charming. A foolproof recipe that relies on simple ingredients, the light-handed addition of canna-butter makes these cookies a tasteful housewarming gift for cannabis-friendly co-workers or friends. Look for culinary lavender in the tea or bulk section of your natural grocery store.

 

Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies

 

Ingredients

•   4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

•   2 ounces canna-butter, at room temperature

•   ½ cup granulated sugar, extra for sprinkling

•   2 teaspoons culinary lavender

•   ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

•   1 ¾ cups flour

•   1/8 teaspoon salt

 

Instructions

 In a clean coffee grinder dedicated for herbs, grind the culinary lavender. Alternatively, finely chop on a wooden cutting board with a large kitchen knife. Take caution though, the small grains of lavender will easily squirt across the room though, so chop slowly and deliberately. I found that mashing the lavender in a mortal and pestle, then chopping with a large knife works best.

Using the paddle attachment on a standing mixer or electric hand beaters, mix together the butter, canna-butter and sugar. Add vanilla and finely chopped lavender. Mix. Add flour and salt, mixing on low until the dough comes together.

Turn dough onto a cutting board and either roll into a cylinder-shaped log for round cookies (pictured) or a long rectangle for square cookies. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, slice the log of dough into ¼ inch thick slices. Place slices on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool before storing. Enjoy with tea and good company.
